    You're right that democrats are getting help from corporations just like republicans because of Citizens United and neither of these parties and none of the candidates in EITHER party is turning down major contributions that are being received now because of this SCOTUS ruling.  I think repubs are benefitting more, however.  

    It's just like lobbyists.  We've heard all kinds of bitching and moaning from both sides about lobbyists buying elections through the use of campaign dollars.  But, here again, it's both sides benefitting from this.  Don't know which side is benefitting more, but that's not the point.

    We have a systemic problem in fundraising for political campaigns in this country and until we solve that problem, very little will change in the grand scheme of things.
